Sculpture

I’ve stopped making sculpture full time, but continue to do some for my own satisfaction and would be delighted to include a piece in a garden design.

A younger version of me carving a site-specific sculpture for Avon Heath Country Park near Ringwood in Dorset. In the background is the caravan where I lived for that summer while carving two large sculptures based on the Park’s flora.

Through art college at Canterbury and Wolverhampton and during my professional career my sculptures varied considerably, but certain themes reoccurred again and again –  our connection with the land, forms suggested by the landscape and making pieces for specific sites.

While I like and can enjoy more conceptual artwork my own was based firmly on making forms, objects that could be touched, walked round and even climbed on.  I was and still am attracted to natural materials such as wood, stone, clay, sand and water.

Below is a slide show of my work in roughly chronological order,  if you are interested in commissioning a piece I still feel an affinity with all the types of work shown and would be happy to adapt my past ideas or come up with new ones to suit the site.  The pieces were all made by myself – so also demonstrate the skills I can bring to making garden structures. The exception is some drystone walling on the Rocko, and some of the metal elements.
